Lesson Learned: Always Wear Your Seat Belt!
Our clients were visiting Georgia in November 2021, for a family funeral when an allegedly intoxicated driver crossed over the double yellow line and forcefully struck the driver’s side of our clients’ 2020 Chevrolet Malibu. The impact sent the 2020 Malibu – shown below – into a violent counter-clockwise rotation, spinning six (6) full rotations over 75 feet. The forces of the impact caused all of the vehicle’s airbags to deploy, and, thankfully, our clients were fully seat-belted.
Our clients were transported by EMS from the scene to a local Georgia hospital for evaluation and treatment of orthopedic and head injuries related to the crash. When our clients returned to Florida, they were evaluated by an orthopedic specialist and underwent a regimen of physical therapy. They continue to receive medical care.
Criminal charges against the at-fault driver are still pending.
The Georgia Highway Patrolman who investigated this crash advised our clients that there was no chance they would have survived this crash but for their seat belts!
